If one likes to wear eg. Finamore shirts and EG shoes should ones suit reflect this or is it ok to primary spend money on shirts and shoes and not on the suit or should it be vice versa?

Do any of you "opinionated" people really not have an opinion on this?

Depends on your financial situation.

Personally, I'd probably spend an equal amount on Suit and Shoes, and skimp on the shirt/accessories if I was trying to be economical.

Just look like you spent a lot, without actually spending a lot.

disagree, i think that there is not much of a difference to the average person between say...Polo and say Purple label.

Big difference to us, but they both look very nice and both look like something someone wealthy would wear.

Then you would have enough left over to buy a nice shirt, nice shoes, ect.

I wouldnt skimp on anything, if you had to skimp in the short term, i would skimp on accessories.

Agree - as the cut and details of the shirt do not show the same way as the drape of the suit.
